The Hornets will start Bismack Biyombo at center against the Pacers on Sunday, sliding Cody Zeller up to power forward.
Well, the Hornets had to do something after PJ Washington broke his finger and Nicolas Batum was ruled out with lingering soreness in his surgically-repaired hand. Seeing as they lack the personnel at both forward spots, they're choosing to get creative and play a two-center lineup against Indiana's supersized frontcourt. It'll be interesting to see how this affects Miles Bridges, who hasn't played at SF since last season, but for the most part expect the Hornets' guards to carry the offensive load, as usual. This is still a matchup to target for the Pacers' bigs.
